Cyberpunk 2077’s launch has been less than ideal across all platforms. The game is severely unpolished full of bugs and errors. One of the errors PC players are experiencing with Cyberpunk 2077 is the “Key Binding Failed” error. This error doesn’t allow players to bind or rebind keys and here is how to fix it.
How To Fix Key Binding Failed Error
The fix for this particular Cyberpunk 2077 isn’t very a long one but, can be a bit confusing. Here is how to fix the “Key Binding Failed” error. Go to the game’s install folder by right-clicking Cyberpunk 2077 in Steam library > Properties > Local Files tab > click Browse Local Files. Navigate to Cyberpunk 2077 > r6 > config and open “inputUserMappings.xml” in notepad. Press Ctrl + F and look for the key you want to bind by typing “IK_’the key you want to bind’”. For example, if you want to bind the F key, type the following with quotes.
Then replace every instance of it with another key that you don’t intend to use like “IK_G” by replacing ‘G’ with any key you want. Save these changes and launch Cyberpunk 2077 and players will be able to bind the keys they unbind in the “inputUserMappings.xml” file. This will fix the Key Binding Failed error.
